A few of my favorite (kitchen) things

I should be sleeping. Mostly because I'm already exhausted, but also because Kade has been running a fever tonight, and you know that babies and fevers often mean rough nights. But...here I am, blogging instead. I felt the need to share a few of my favorite things in the kitchen. No pictures to go along with the list, though. You don't get to see the clutter that has taken over my kitchen right now!

*my Kitchen Aid mixer. I love that thing! D was amazed last year when I loaned my baby out to Christi, lol!! I've had it for over 5 years. It's the 4.5 qt style. If I ever have to replace it, I'll probably get a 5 qt, but otherwise, it's been great!!

*aprons. I have quite a collection of aprons. Yes, I actually use them!! I'm a bit messy you see... Sean even has his own. I think he's up to three of them now!!

*my coffee pot. Oh how I love thee. I think that technically I have three. My fave is my Senseo one cup machine. I heart it (although I will admit I order my coffee pods from this website). I also have a Brew Station, because sometimes you just need to make a whole pot, although I don't use it much lately, since I'm nursing and not as caffeinated as I would often like to be! It works okay...but not wonderfully. One day, I will own a Bunn!! And I also have a small 4-cup maker that my grandmother gave me about 10 years ago when I had my own apartment. I just can't seem to part with it. Hi, my name is Katy, and I'm a packrat!!

*my recipe files and cookbooks. I mean really, need I say more? I have a ton. I do need to post a picture of them someday.

*my sous chef and future sous chef. C'mon, I had to mention the kids, right??

*my dishwasher. The Kenmore one, and the one I'm married to. And most definitely my mother. I admit it, when we have our cooking days, it's mostly me cooking and her cleaning. I love her!! :)

There's more, I'm sure, but I'm not going to list every gadget and gizmo I have. And I think the oven goes without saying. ;)

Later!!

You were so awesome lending me your mixer last year and I loved it too- so much so that it promted me to get to. Now, the only the thing I make in it is mashed potatoes. however, I see cookies in my very near future and I am sure it will be used!!!

I love that you use aprons. You are my hero!!
